ethiopian ethos

among the

majang people,

little children

will rub their

empty bellies

and cry to

their parents


i am starving!


souls, too, feel

growling hunger

for real food

of good word

as eager people

gather round

to listen to a

talking bible!


jesus prayed,

multiplied bread

to nourish


and disciples

gathered up


do we have

crumbs to spare?
